dollars in unpaid taxes and employees skipped out. and help may be on the way. and house committee jason chaffetz, a member of that committee is here. >> thank you, greta. >> greta: what's on the way? we pay the salaries of the federal employees, but looks like a pass when it comes to taxes? >> look, if you don't pay your federal taxes, you should be fired. that's what the bill does. if you're trying to make whole on this and going through restitution, great, you're fine, but we have 107,000 current federal employees on the know, being paid by the taxpayers that have serious delinquent tax debt and we have to fire those people if they refuse to pay their taxes. >> greta: when you're talking about what kinds of numbers. 3.5 billion is the total. and your bill omits members of the military. >> military, we have a different situation, they deal with hardship, some of retirees. but you have 688 people working on capitol hill in the house and senate and you have 40 people working-- >> and now their names. >> we know how many, we know how many. because there's a tax lien there's public record
's so many obligations so many new taxes associated with it. it's incredibly expense simple. it was supposed to lower the cost. it has raised the cost of the premiums for average family, and in the neighborhood of $5,000. this is a disaster. and the real question is, will anybody have the honesty to own up to the fact this is a disaster and saying can we start over again and do this in a reasonable way and get the voices of people who actually know something about how to save money involved? everybody agrees that healthcare reform is necessary. but it needs to be done the right way. neil neil do you think it's too late for that? that this sort of medical ship has sailed and despite all the problems, i don't see the administration trying to draw it back. paul ryan wants to rescind the whole healthcare program and start fresh, but that's unlikely. so given that distinct possibility, what are we left with? >> well, i'm not as pessimistic as you are. i think there is just a slight chance that maybe some people who have pushed this thing forward, can stop for a moment and instead
, and opportunity. they are clinging to the status quo. more taxing, more spending, more borrowing. we owe the american people a responsible, balanced budget. that's what we are delivering today. and i urge support of this resolution. >> well, paul ryan's pitch worked. 221 house republicans backed his plan that seeks to slash almost $5 trillion in spending and balance the budget in ten years. senate democrats promptly voted the ryan plan down last night. with me now michigan democratic congressman sander levin the top dm on the ways and means committee. i know you've spoken out forcefully against the ryan budget. let me ask you this. where do we go? republican controlled house, democratic controlled senate. obviously the senate made very clear the ryan plan was not their vision for the future of budgeting in this country. where do we go? how do we resolve these differences on where to spend money and why? >> it is going to be very difficult. the republican conference has really become radicalized. i was reading a clip from politico a few days ago that had republicans in georgia saying they
romney has not paid taxes for ten years, he's got a record of this slander and these lies. >> happy wednesday, sean. look, this is a majority leader in the senate that's gotten caught lying many times and when the marine corps says that what he is saying is unsubstantiated, they're saying he's lying again. harry reid has made a habit of being dishonest on the floor of the senate and what he is trying to do is just cover the president's butt on sequester. the president himself started to cover his own butt by playing such silly games as shutting the white house tours down. this is just another version of that. remember, donald trump offered to pay for all those white house tours. >> sean: whoa, whoa, whoa. >> and the president didn't take him up on it. >> sean: and wait a minute, i offered to pay for a week after eric biology golling got start started. by the way, it's off the table, i pay enough in taxes. >> you and bill maher. >> sean: yeah, he's even sick of paying taxes and california democrats are losing him. gee, time to wake up, bill. but here is my point: these democrats get
of the party right now is that it is anti-tax and once big cuts in the size of government. and that has not changed. and through the whole budget wars we've been seeing, the sequester, i think this came up the last time i was here. the economic conservatives, the low tax, small government conservatives have established their supremacy. they have beaten out the national security hawks who didn't want to see cuts to defense. i think this is an example where they're beating the social conservatives who aren't ready for a shift in gay marriage. opposition within the party to gay marriage is substantial and they don't want a more liberalized immigration policy. so the one thing that is still here is low taxes, including on the wealthy, and deep cuts to government. i think that is a fundamental problem for the party. it cause them problems with all kinds of groups. there is only so much you can do when you change the language as long as you hold on to the tax and spending cuts policies. >> you touched on immigration policy. i think lawmakers in washington on the republican side see it as esse
plus tax increases and have net spending increases and when he you have a trillion dollar deficit, we need to work on our spending and when the other side is offering even more spending increases and even more tax increases, more borrowing, we're still kind of worlds apart. >> greta: i went through the budget and it's very complicated, at least i think it's complicated. and i want to go to different provisions i understand. let me start with medicare. under your program it doesn't affect anyone over age 55. >> if you're born in 1958 or earlier, it doesn't affect you. meaning you stay in the current medicare program just as it's designed now. in addition we get rid of the obamacare independent payment advisor board. the board of 15 bureaucrats next year in charge of cutting medicare in ways that medicare will lead to denied access to current seniors so we don't think we should change medicare for current seniors, which is what obamacare does, we propose a new system for younger people that works like what we have in congress. >> greta: and as i understand it, there are two choices unde
spending and increases taxes, is what the american people voted for back in november? is that what they voted for? >> do you know there's no one that challenges that america's on the road to recovery. if you think for one minute just saying that you are cutting spending, that doesn't mean that you are cutting savings. it doesn't mean you're not -- more money. >> neil: even under the -- we're cutting the growth. are you saying -- >> you're talking about -- jo congressman, yes or no, do you think cutting spending should be a goal? yes or no. >> should i think cutting -- yes, it's how you cut it, of course. everybody believes in cutting. >> neil: what would you cut? >> there's so much money that's already been cut. if we had the obama law, things were cut there. ryan knows it, because he took out the savings we had in the president's bill. even though he's against the bill, somehow he found it that the cutting of savings. >> you're saying what she wants to do is fine with you, even though it effectively calls for more spending, more taxing, and doesn't address these issues? >> i don't
introduce $20 billion in additional taxes this year and $40 billion in new taxes next year. so the deficit under the democratic senate budget proposal which only thing we've got at this point, calls for more spending and more taxes and bigger deficits. that is not where the american people are. recent polls this week showed that 55% of the american people favored the republican budget plan. if you took the word republican off of it and simply described would you support a budget that balances the budget and raises no taxes and cuts $5 trillion of them favor that 55% to 24% that budget that would raise taxes by a trillion and cut spending by hundred billion and not balance the budget which is what the democratic budget calls for. >> greta: we are 18 months out from the 2014 election. we have the house has passed a budget and senate has passed a budget. it will go to a conference for reconciliation. both parties have made it sent tral focus of 2014. it is a signal they are more interested in winning and making sorted smear each other's face with each other budget rather than drawing common g
costs is beginning to slow. but they want to repeal part of obamacare. a tax on medical devices that would have increased the costs we pay for things like latex gloves to wheelchairs to hip replacement. there is still $1.3 trillion in other taxes that are set to hit over the next decade. house republican speaker john boehner put out a statement on obamacare. he said, quote, far from bending the cost curve, it's projected price tag is nearly doubled. health insurance premiums are expected to climb further when the law takes full effect next year. the millions of jobs democrats promised is nowhere to be found and businesses large and small are already pointing to the impact of obamacare as the reason for planned layoffs and reluctance to hire more staff. republican controlled house passed the budget that repeals and de-funds obamacare but in the senate in this week a measure to repeal obamacare was voted down. >> the beat goes on. thank you very much. >> gregg: not much has changed. >> the senate approving a democratic budget in a late nightmare thon of voting. >> the ayes are 50,
. lower taxes on rich people, not lower taxes for everybody, right? they don't like taxes, but letting the payroll tax cut expire was in fact their policy. lower taxes in general. lower taxes on richer wealthier americans. cutting social programs. entitlements they go back and forth. medicare they go back and forth. you remember mitt romney and paul ryan ran in the election as they were going to stop the democrats terrible intention to cut medicare, then paul ryan got back winto the house and writin a budget he kept all those cuts and added new ones and had more added into this is program. the real shock in recent weeks or real frustration trying to cov covers the budget debates. republicans cover five issues, they want to cut the democrbudg deficits and cut defense spending and simplify the tax code and lower tax rates. in a deal with president obama they could get the first four, more deficit reduction, protect defense, the democratic president would get some cover in cutting medicare and social security and they could simplify the tax code by taking out expenditures. they are now sa
for 1 trillion in tax increases over the next decade. elizabeth plan will break it down at the bottom of the hour. president obama wrapping up four day tour in the middle east. before leaving israel the president managed to broker a an apology from netanyahu to the british prime minister over commando raid turkish ship that killed 8. he admitted mistakes were made in 2010 as forces were nato embargo. >> can i tell you about this meteor? >> i love that i was up up all night tracking this. this was the meteor they were talking about if you live along the east coast. it's all anybody is talking about. video of reportedly a meteor over a home in maryland from north carolina all the way up to maine. hundreds of people reported official across the sky. claims to captured the security video too. nasa experts says the space rock was probably the size of a softball or volleyball. they are not sure what size ball it was. perhaps a basketball. it burned up in the atmosphere though. >> alisyn: thank goodness. thank you for monitoring that. please call me immediately if you see it heading towards
six weeks ago and saying you got your taxes and now we want to see some spending cuts. are those two positions in concrete and intractable? >> i don't think so. the only time i would flatten the tax code and i think that is a good idea, by the way, to eliminate a lot of the loopholes and deductions but what do you do with the money? i would like to put some on the debt and buy down tax rates particularly the corporate rate to create jobs. we need economic growth. for me to o do that he has to embrace entitlement reforms. social security and medicare are going bankrupt. a demographic change in the country. 10,000 baby boomers retire a day. medicare and social security are unsustainable. if the president will help me save medicare and social security and refor reform medii will flatten the tax code but not going to do one without the other. i'm looking for the biggest spending cut in the history of the country along with reforms to save medicare and social security from bankruptcy. then i will do revenue. >> mike: for the first time since is the benghazi incident, we are beginning to f
responsibility as opposed to the republican plan which provides another tax break wind fall to very wealthy people at the end of everybody else. the expense of the middle class, the expense of commitments to seniors. so our focus right now is to number one, do no harm to the economy. number two, invest in a jobs plan that will help put people back to work. whether building roads or bridges or infrastructure or other things important to our economy. >> why will it take until 2040 to balance the budget under your plan? >> well, if you actually look at the past 40 years, we've only had four balanced budgets. those were during the clinton years and once leaning over to the bush years and then they squandered that balance. so the reason we do that is our focus is on jobs, craig. our focus is on meeting our commitments to seniors. we will not balance the budget on the backs of our kids' education or on the backs of our commitments to seniors. whether it is under medicare or medicaid. what we do is immediately begin to reduce the deficit so they're growing much slower than the economy. which is th
the socialist bernie sanders from vermont who is independent. the cpc wants a 49% federal income tax rate on top earners. they want half. and they don't want many deductions for those folks. also the congressional progressive caucus wants even more government spending. 2.5 trillion more, on, quote, job creation. another 2.2 trillion on things like science, energy, the environment and education. also the cpc does not want to cut entitlements. and, wants to give unemployed americans 99 weeks of cash compensation. nearly two years. the quest does president obama think of the congressional progressive caucus? my opinion, he likes it i don't think the president believes that crew is fanatical because they want what he wants. by the way, the far left kooks do want to cut one thing, defense spending. they want to bring that back down to 2006 level. somewhere in iran is cheering. there comes a point when americans are going to have to decide what country, what kind of country they want. even taking half of what affluent americans earn, feds couldn't possibly afford what the far left wants to provide. so

. granting huge tax breaks, that has to be made up somewhere. the ryan budget repeals the affordable care act except they keep the projected savings in their budget projections. the $716 billion that we heard so much about in the election last year, paul ryan keeps the savings that obamacare would generate, but eliminates the benefits. the revenues that come from some of the taxes on medical devices and other things, they keep the revenue that comes from the affordable care act, but they want to cut the benefits. so thouis is really about an ideology. the wealthiest americans have essentially captured the republican caucus. and what we see in the ryan budgity or in anything that has to do with the affordable care act, anything that has to do with the smart investments that we know we need to get the economy growing again, those are off the table. big tax cuts for the wealthiest americans that has to be made up by somebody and we know who that somebody is. >> thank you for coming in. there is no huge surprise that the ryan budget overwhelmingly passed in the house or that it failed in in the s

need -- we've gotten less tax revenue because of the recession. and so, remember, the europeans have already bailed out greece, portugal, ireland. so when cyprus went to them, we'll lend you $10 billion. you guys have to come up with $7 billion. and the way the cyprus economy is structured, it's almost all banks. huge banks relative to the size of the economy. and so the solution they came up with was taxing deposits in banks. that has turned out to be incredibly controversial. last night the parliament here voted it down even though there had been intense negotiations for weeks about it. now today, it's about plan "b" and it's not clear whether there will be a plan "b." the banks are closed, only get money out of atms, the financial system here on the verge of collapse. and if things don't get resolved quickly, this could be the first country that leaves the euro, chris. >> obviously, investors around the world are watching this really closely. what about here in the u.s.? what kind of repercussions might we feel here? >> well, the biggest repercussion that we saw is when they decid

unpopular tax on private savings accounts failed to collect a single yes vote. for more, let's check in with with my cube mate in cyprus. michelle, you made it. >> reporter: yeah, we made it finally after lots of delays. now it's mission critical and a search for plan b. last night the parliament roundly said we don't want to attach the deposits of the banking system here. but the situation is they still have to come up with nearly 6 billion euros. remember what the end game here. this country has gone to other european countries and said we need a total of 17 billion euro toss bail out our banks and keep our government afloat. and they said we'll give you 10 billion. you have to contribute something yourself. you know where all the money is in this country? it's in the banking system. it's a huge banking system, eight times the size of their economy. consider this, brian, if the us banking system was as big relative to the u.s. economy as cyprus is, we would have 45 more banks the size of jpmorgan in the united states. that's how big it is. that's why there's a need to tax deposits.
